We’ve known since before 2005 that studies showed that our African American patients and friends had a higher incidence of colon cancer, a later stage if diagnosed on their first (index) screening colonoscopy, and a lower survival.
Early screening can be the key to saving lives. Read more about colon cancer and colonoscopy at Dr. Raymond's site. Link
